AN inspirational Paralympian dropped in to a Wirral school to honour its high-flying former students.

Roy Turnham, a paralympic footballer from Liverpool, visited The Mosslands School in Wallasey as it held its annual senior awards evening.

The event was a chance for the school to welcome back more than 100 former pupils, as well as current sixth formers, to present them with prizes for their achievements.

Roy, who gave a speech to the students about his experiences, played as part of Team GB's blind football squad at last year's London Paralympics.

Adrian Whiteley, headteacher at The Mosslands School, said: "It was fantastic to see the past Year 11 students and present Sixth Formers, welcoming them back to recognise their hard work and commitment.

"Roy Turnham's speech was very inspirational, and I hope it gave the boys motivation and desire to work hard at their chosen careers and to reach their goals."
